by the Left Coast Rebel
Personally, I would rather not consider anything even remotely 'tongue in cheek' coming from Barney Frank. Regardless, (The Hill):
What an idiot. Also, due to a busy schedule here, the Left Coast Rebel forgo the chance to write of newly elected Rep. Charles Djou in Hawaii. This morning I caught Djou on Fox and Friends and he brilliantly stuck to basic fiscal responsibility, Tea Party principles.
Tongue firmly in cheek, Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) on Tuesday afternoon called on reporters to demand to see the birth certificate of new Rep. Charles Djou (R-Hawaii).It was a small bit of payback for the enormous amount of attention some conservatives (and the media) paid to the is-the-president-really-from-America controversy.
As Djou (pictured here) was being sworn into office, Frank walked the hallway of the Speaker's Lobby off the House floor calling on the media to "do your job" and review Djou's papers.
But, unlike the commander-in-chief, as Frank knows, being born outside the U.S. does not preclude you from becoming a member of Congress.
I like the guy! And although he is simply filling out the term of 10-term congressman Neil Abercrombie (Djou will hold the seat until January, 2011) and he narrowly won in a 3 way race, his win was historic in it's importance.
He simply has a pleasant way about him and represents just what is needed. Here's Rep. Charles Djou's first House floor speech from yesterday:
Hawaii is a putrified liberal cesspool, welfare state. If they can send a guy like this to Congress and from the Obamanation's own home turf as well, then anything is possible.
